The role of Penguin/ Oswald Cobblepot's mother has been cast in the new series of Gotham. The news, announced by TVLine, sees Carol Kane taking on the role of Gertrud Cobblepot, Penguins mother.
Penguin is currently played by Robin Lord-Taylor.
If Gertrud is to play a prominent role in Gotham, we can speculate that the Pain and Prejudice comic series could be being using for the Penguin storyline. It's very hard to tell what they are doing with this. This is a whole new universe and I expect there will be lots of mashups from all of the comics.
But what do you think about that casting decision for Penguins mum?
